Teased a few months ago, it was during the recent State of Play from PlayStation that we got our first look at the upcoming Monster Hunter World expansion, Iceborne. But it was not just the trailer we got, as right after the stream, Capcom took to the internet with a stream of their own and took a longer look at the game.
The Iceborne expansion builds on every aspect of Monster Hunter: World, starting with an all-new story that picks up after the main game and whisks hunters away to a newly discovered chilly locale called Hoarfrost Reach. The snow-covered terrain offers an ecosystem that contrasts areas in the main game and progressively expands with the story. Iceborne is set to offer the largest region in the game so far, presenting hunters a wealth of new content with even more quests to face than in the original release.
For those who can’t for Iceborne to release, which is going to happen on September 6th, the most recent content update for the base game celebrates the aggressive flagship monster Nergigante who will finally appear in the formidable Arch-Tempered form for a limited time from May 11 UTC. Defeating this ultimate challenge will yield the powerful Nergigante γ (gamma) armour.
